Hello March!

March is one of my favorite months. Just a few reasons why I like March:
the end of winter
tulips and daffodils
birds return and begin to sing
baby bunnies play in my garden
trees bud and flower
spring officially begins
spring break /the beach
longer days
aquamarine gemstone

Happy March!

Aquamarine ice.

I'll take this for my birthday.

A place just for me.


A beautiful Easter egg.

Not me, but fun.

  6. Beautiful Rita,we all wish the arrival of the spring, this one has been a long and hard winter in Spain.
    Thank you for this small advance that today you leave us.

    You have a marvelous blog; please come by anytime!


  13. Hello My Lovely Rita!

    I just thoroughly enjoyed these phots...I am SO INTO the light aqua lately...can't get enough of it.

    I would be HONORED to have you do a post on my shoes and link to my little blog. I am so glad you like them! Your opinion is held in high regard by me. You have such exquisite taste.

    Best to you,

    your friend,

  15. Beautiful, gorgeous, lovely! I can just see the baby bunnies running around your garden!

    Lovely blog, just discovered you from Trish Jett' now following!



  16. DearRita,
    What a beautiful study in turquoise. I just LOVE that ring.
    I, too, welcome the Spring with open arms and love the month of little green buds and shoots start to appear and the days feel just a little warmer.
    Enjoy March Rita, and but yourself a bunch of daffodils !! XXXX

  17. Hi,

    I just found your blog and I am not sure how I linked to it, but I have to tell you. Wow, I love it and also we have alot in common. I have two dreams also, one is a high rise in Chicago, and a mountain place in NC. I live in NC in a larger city, and Chicago is my favorite place in the world.

    I have a blog but haven't blogged in a while, but my last blog was about my highrise hotel room in Chicago. We stayed at the Wit, and our room and view was fabulous. I did just what you said, opened the drapes and stared out at the city Skyline, well actually the Chicago River and the Corn Cob. Thanks for the great blog, you actually made me want to blog again!

  18. This post is definitely a feast for the eyes! Love every single image!


I hope this made you smile. I look forward to hearing what you have to say!
